Dhaka building collapse survivor calls for compensation for victims

A woman who was pulled alive from the rubble of a clothing factory which collapsed in Bangladesh is calling for compensation for the families of those who died.

Reshma Begum was discovered by rescuers more than two weeks after the Dhaka building collapsed. More than 1,100 people died in the disaster.

Six months later, she is calling on foreign companies which buy the clothes made in Bangladesh to honour their promises.

Mahfuz Sadique reports from Dhaka.
